The CFL has looked at those two multiple times. There's no prospective owner and nowhere to play in either city. Moncton's largest venue is 10,000 seats and got up to around 21,000 for Touchdown Atlantic. Halifax doesn't have anything particularly suitable either. Neither city plans to build anything.Halifax and Moncton but the cfl don't care about there future
And I'll believe it when I see it. Just looking at Ticketmaster, there sure seems to be lots of tickets left in almost every section, the same as other games when I've looked in the last couple of years. Regardless of the attendance numbers they make up and think some people will believe, I'm not sure the number of people actually there for most games would have filled the 5000 seat Varsity Stadium.Press releases like this are no help for the CFL - the Argos are bragging about selling 20,000 tickets ...
can't figure out why there isn't any fans out of almost 10 million people that could fill the stadium up.
Actually heans, when the Bombers lost to Calgary in the Grey Cup of 2001 they were playing in the Eastern division that year because the Ottawa team had folded. In the 1992 Grey Cup loss to Calgary they were also playing in the Eastern division because the Montreal team had folded. So technically there has never been 2 Western division teams in the Grey Cup gamethat's not true about two western teams being in the grey cup.one of the first years of cross over when Ottawa was called the rough riders the Winnipeg blue bombers were the cross over team and won the east played Calgary and lost to them
